Effect of vermicomposting on the transformation of some trace elements in fly ash

  title={Effect of vermicomposting on the transformation of some trace elements in fly ash},
  author={Satya Sundar Bhattacharya and Gunindra N Chattopadhyay},
  journal={Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems},
One major constraint of the agricultural uses of fly ash (FA) is the low availability of different plant nutrients despite their high occurrence in the total amount. However, degrading FA through increased microbial activity can improve the availability of these nutrients substantially. It has been found that intestines of epigeic earthworms contain a high concentration of different microorganisms. Therefore, in the present study we addressed the effects of vermicomposting technology on the… CONTINUE READING
